100 days of Bush Presidency left, 100 days of George Bush, take one down.....

More Bushisms to laugh at;

  • "As Luce reminded me, he said, without data, without facts, without information, the discussiona about public education mean that a person is just another opinion."
  • "This is what I'm good at. I like meeting people, my fellow citizens, I like interfacing with them."
  • "Free societies are hopeful societies. And free societies will be allies against these hateful few who have no conscience, who kill at the whim of a hat."
  • "I will have a foreign-handed foreign policy."
  • "A tax cut is really one of the anecdotes to coming out of an economic illness."
  • "I am a person who recognizes the fallacy of humans."
  • "I glance at the headlines just to kind of get a flavor for what's moving. I rarely read the stories, and get breifed by people who are probably read the news themselves."
  • "America better beware of a candidate who is willing to stretch reality in order to win points."
  • "I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma because there is - my point is, there's a strong will for democracy."
  • "We need an energy bill that encourages consumption."
  • "I own a timber company? That's news to me. Need some wood?"
  • "It is clear our nation is reliant upon big foreign oil. More and more of our imports come from overseas."
  • "Saddam would still be in power if [John Kerry] were the president of the United States, and the world would be better off."
  • "See, free nations are peaceful nations. Free nations don't attack each other. Free nations don't develop weapons of mass destruction."
  • "Border relations between Canada and Mexico have never been better."

Only 100 days left!

Today a 20-something girl giving a talk in church kept using the word "antidotes" when she meant "anecdotes." I appeared to be the only person snickering over it, which was sad.
Perhaps she's been learning from the President....

My favorite is the border-relations between Canada and Mexico.

Yeah, the border relations comment was one of my favorites, but I also really liked the "more and more of our imports come from overseas." Yeah. Nice. The man's a freakin' genius. Almost as good as "I know foreign policy. I can see Russia from the state I'm Governor of."

Well, technically, not all our imports are from overseas, as anything from North or South America would not be overseas. So -- weirdly enough -- he could have been right, although it was probably just by accident.
